    Default Comprehensive Parts Supplier List - Its a small world

    Greetings, fellow Rover-heads(is that a thing? Can we start that, if it isn't?)

    I'm new to the world of Land Rovers (2 months in, just purchased a 1973 Series 3)...but I've been building American hotrod and classics for 2 decades(1968 Firebird, 1976 VW Bus, 1941 Chevy,etc). So, I'm not exactly a newbie, and willing to get my knuckles busted and dirty.

    A thing that takes time (years) is stumbling through and finding all the specialized suppliers of parts for your particular classic or antique. And, I just don't want to wait years. It's 2021. We have the internet. Let's just put the list out there, for everyone to find. It's a small world.

    To our gracious hosts, thank you for providing great parts, advice and this forum to help us all. If you are buying parts, consider supporting Rovers North by buying from them first. Okay, PSA out of the way. Honestly, they have great parts, but sometimes they don't stock everything, so sooner or later you have to go hunting for other suppliers for odd parts. So, no one is loosing business here.

    If you guys could add any suppliers you like or know of, and a note about what they have, or their specialty, that would really help others. And, maybe keep the summary to like 200 characters or less(sorry, I broke that rule already) so they stack up nice and people can skim down the thread quickly.

    I'll begin:

    Rovers North - www.RoversNorth.com - Great all around supplier of genuine and aftermarket(Proline) LR parts. Located in VT, USA

    Pangolin4x4- www.Pangolin4x4.com - New and used parts, some fabrication of hard to find parts. Located in Oregon, USA.

    Rocky Mountain Products - www.parabolicsprings.com - Few essential fabricated products, like springs, doors and overdrive units. - Located in Canada.

    LR Direct - www.LRDirect.com - General purpose aftermarket and genuine parts supplier in the UK. Has lots of odds and ends that are hard to find in the US. Use part# from parts catalog to find stuff. - Located in Leyland, UK.

    John Craddock, Ltd - www.johncraddockltd.co.uk - General purpose parts, genuine and aftermarket. Lots of odds and ends, screws and fixtures and multiple parts brands for the same part.

    Haystee Automotive - www.heystee-automotive.com - Engineering & Fabrication of Disc brake conversions kits, Pwr steering add-on kits and overdrive units. Upgrade your rover to modern convenience/essentials - Located in Arnheim, The Netherlands

    Brookwells - www.brookwell.co.uk - Another General purpose UK supplier of parts. Basic stuff. Not as extensive as John Craddock or LRDirect, but some worth checking part# in search tool. - Many locations in UK.

    Mahopac Auto Paint https://everestautomotivemarket.com/mahopacautopaint/ - Online automotive paint supplier. Has Land Rover Series paint colors by name. Sells in gallon, quart, rattle can/ aerosol can and small touch-up quantities. Great for small parts and DIY. In the US, so ground shipping of aerosols is okay. - Located in Mahopac, NY.

    [Edit] - Make sure to account in an extra 4 days in your timing. They hand-mix all paints for each order. They don't just ship off-the-shelf. So, getting your paint can take 2-3 weeks. fyi...
